An artificial intelligence (AI) system has found telltale arcs of light in deep space that could be evidence of new black holes or neutron stars. The AI, called Einstein@Home, analyzed data from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) and found the arcs in images of distant galaxies. The arcs are caused by the gravitational lensing effect, which bends light around massive objects. The AI’s findings could help scientists better understand the formation and evolution of black holes and neutron stars.
T cells, the critical immune cells of the adaptive immune system, are often dysfunctional in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and are involved in AD pathology. Reports highlight neuroinflammation as a crucial modulator of AD pathogenesis, and aberrant T cells indirectly contribute to neuroinflammation by secreting proinflammatory mediators via direct crosstalk with glial cells infiltrating the brain.

The world of academics is rife with the stiff competition; for funds and research grants, prestigious appointments, peerage, reputation, and acknowledgment. It is no surprise therefore that even this honorable profession is marred by several forms of unscrupulous practices. While the unscrupulous or unethical practices of academicians (like plagiarism, duplicate publications) are one side of […]
Computer algorithms emerge as groundbreaking tools poised to revolutionize the tracking and diagnosis of periodontal disease. This innovative approach holds promise in providing a more efficient and precise means of assessing gum health. Periodontal disease, characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums and supporting structures, necessitates timely intervention for effective management. Body: Computer algorithms, […]
